Artists have set out to start a window farm craze in NYC. Britta and Rebecca will work with agricultural, architectural and other specialists to create high-profile prototype window farms and means for sharing design ideas to meet varying local situations around the city. This project fits within the larger context of the artists' collaborative work: crowdsourced R&D solutions for environmental issues. Their inspiration for community involvement derives from concepts of local production (think of the coming network of 3-D multi-material printers), mass customization, and mass collaboration enabled by Web 2.0.

This is a proposal to develop a Culture and Technology Center in Old Nazareth that will be a place to research, collaborate and create using media and technology. With a strong commitment to education, the programs will further media literacy and technological proficiency, while engaging progressive social and environmental issues. The center will serve the region, welcome local initiatives and connect to the global discourse. This proposal describes three potential programs:

eco-vis

Eyebeam hosted a public critique for the Eco-Vis Challenge submissions as part of the Upgrade! series of public programming.

A distinguished panel of New York-based artists and designers discussed what role an art and technology center can play in raising public awareness on environmental issues, and how visualizing environmental data can address the crisis. The guest critics not only dicussed their criteria for a useful, engaging, and successful visualization project, but were available to give in-depth feedback to the Eco-Vis Challenge participants. Panelists included: Michael Mandiberg, Natalie Jeremijemko, and Upgrade! founders Mushon Zer-Aviv and Yael Kanarek.
